Munich-based Habibi Plush has conquered hearts around the world with their microwavable bedtime warmers. Whether it is cute stuffed animals, heatable slippers or cosy body warmers, young and old alike will love their new winter companion. Eleven years ago, Susanne Spachtholz sold traditional millet-filled warming cushions from a stall on Munich’s Christmas Market. A little girl passed by and asked about stuffed animals. “That sparked the idea and we started creating classic teddy bears,” the company founder recalls. On a vacation to Dubai, Spachtholz picked up the Arabic word habibi, which means ‘friend’ and thus found the perfect name for the fluffy companions.
